Since 1971, Yale Health Center has been the principal provider of acute, specialty, and primary care for Yale University students, faculty, staff, retirees, and their families. Over 50 years later, Yale Health has more than 40,000 members who come from every state in the country and nearly every country in the world.
Our Partnership for Patient-Centered Care means we respect, hear, and involve our patients as an equal partner in their health goals. Physicians, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, physician assistants, and others - are board certified and committed to a team approach to healthcare. As a not-for-profit care provider, managed and led by physicians, our patients come first and we are continually looking at ways to update and improve our services.
As Yale’s preferred provider of healthcare programs and services, Yale Health provides access to a unique model of care that delivers extraordinary care and services to its members, all located under one roof, in our Primary Care Medical Home.
Yale Health promotes the health and well-being of every member of the Yale community, so that each individual can achieve his or her highest goals and aspirations. Providing consistently outstanding care, compassionate, patient-centered service and innovative practices is our promise to our members and Yale University.
Our state-of-the-art center at 55 Lock Street, built in 2010, is where our members receive most of their care. This 144,000 square-foot medical center has more than 90 exam rooms; an expansive Acute Care Department staffed by a physician and registered nurses; a 17-bed inpatient facility with two negative pressure rooms; a diagnostic imaging suite including MRI, CT scan, x-ray, and ultrasound; and a full-service retail pharmacy. It houses our 150+ providers, including more than 100 primary and consulting physicians.
Yale Health has been continuously accredited by the Joint Commission since 2005 and is the proud recipient of Connecticut’s Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award for Innovation.

This designated Yale Health scheduling portal MUST be used, not the general scheduling link on the YNHH website. This will ensure that test results come back to a Yale Health Primary Care Provider. Bookmark this scheduling portal link for easy access.
